Hi I'm Charles

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently own and operate a Dry Cleaning business that I have owned for 40 years. I am a proud grandfather of two granddaughters and the father of two children who I am equally proud of. I enjoy much of what Colorado has to offer: biking,river rafting, vollyball in the park, just learning to snow ski---good at water skiing, flying remote control helicopters and my most favorite ballroom dancing.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife had a work associate from Sourh America who introduced her to the Church they ask me to join in the discussions but I was a Christian and missionaries were for people in far off lands who do not believe in Jesus. They inticed me with ice cream so guess I could listen for a few minutes enjoy the dessert and go home to nap. When the Missionaries told the story of Joseph Smith's prayer in the Sacred Grove all questions I ever had about God , his nature, how he felt about his children here on Earth and how I fit into the scheme of things became crystal clear to me. After that I could not get enough books to read and there was not enough time to absorb the information that I was being exposed to. Since joining the Church in 1970 I have had many oppotunities to serve and every such oppotunity has brought me growth and personal satisfaction as well as compassion and understanding for my fellow Human Beings.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as Ward Clerk in my ward and greatly enjoy serving the Church Members. I have been active in local Dry Cleaners Associations as well as Non Profit Youth Leadership Programs and some local political issues such as light rail and property tax. Politics in general scares me beacause the pressure to compromise values and standards is very high so I usually feel I am going it alone in those areanas only to find out later others shared my views and values but were afraid to speak up.
